Good people like you sometimes find themselves in bad employment situations for reasons beyond their control. I am dedicated to working with you during this difficult time in your life.

Whistleblower / Qui Tam Cases

Whistleblowers are generally people who see their employer’s wrongdoings and want to do the right thing. Unfortunately, doing the right thing often comes with consequences. I aggressively represent clients who act on ethics.

Federal whistleblower cases with the Department of Labor involve several statutes throughout the United States Code. At the office of James A. Devine, Attorney at Law, I understand the statutes and have experience in this area. I represent clients in all types of retaliatory discharge cases, civil rights cases and federal whistleblower cases.

Federal, State And Local Employees

I represent Federal, state and municipal employees in a variety of employment situations. Public servants have constitutional protections, both state and Federal, and I work with clients to honor those rights. I also represent clients in cases including:

  • Wrongful termination
  • Whistleblower claims
  • Employment contracts
  • Discrimination
  • Sexual harassment
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Fair Labor Standards Act

I understand that my clients may be confused by the actions of their employer or the government, and I work with my clients to protect their rights and help to alleviate their employment law concerns. To schedule a free initial consultation, Contact me or call 217-280-4094.
